    >> Subject: Moses
    >> This is almost overwhelming when you think about it.
    >> You MUST read to the end: (smile)
    >> Moses and the people were in the desert, but what was he
    >>going to do with ! them?
    >> They had to be fed, and feeding 2 or 3 million people requires
    >>a lot of food.
    >> Accordin g to the Quartermaster General in the Army, it is
    >>reported that Moses would have to have had 1500 tons of food each
    >>day. Do you know that to bring that much food each day, two freight
    >>trains, each at least a mile long, would be required!
    >> Besides you must remember, they were out in the desert, so
    >>they would have to have firewood to use in cooking the food. This
    >>would take 4000 tons of wood and a few more freight trains, each
    >>a mile long, just for one day.
    >> And just think, they were forty years in transit.
    >> And Oh yes! They would have to have water. If they only had
    >>enough to drink and wash a few dishes, it would take 11,000,000
    >>gallons each day and a freight train with tank cars, 1800 miles
    >>long, just to bring water!
    >> And then another thing!
    >> They had to get across the Red Sea at night. Now, if they went
    >>on a narrow path, double file, the line would be 800 miles long and
    >>would require35 ! days and nights to get through. So there had to
    >>be a space in the RedSea, 3 miles wide so that they could walk 5000
    >>abreast to get over in onenight.
    >> But then, there is another problem...............each time
    >>they camped at the end of the day, a campgroun d two-thirds the
    >>size of the state of Rhode Island was required, or a total of 750
    >>square miles long........ think of it! This much space for camping.
    >> Do you think Moses figured all this out before he left Egypt?
    >>I think not!
    >> You see, Moses believed in God. God took care of these things
    >>for him.
    >> Now do you think! God has any problem taking care of all your
    >> I asked the Lord to bless you As I prayed for you today. To
    >>guide you and protect you as you go along your way.... His love is
    >>always with you,His promises are true, And when we give Him all our
    >>cares, You know He will see us through.
    >> Our God is an Awesome God!!
    >> So when the road you're traveling on seems difficult at best,
    >>just remember I'm praying and God will do the rest.

    I was wondering where you were going with that but you tied it up nicely in the end. That was great! Thank you. The details of some of these biblical events can really blow your mind!
